'A London based artist, Clare Grossman focuses on the search for an essential energy, the ‘essence’ of a chosen subject encapsulated in an emotional response. Her resulting images are a means of personal exploration, both of technique and of subject, developed through an understanding of structure and form, memory and experience. She reveals artworks that are infused with the physical and instantaneous joy of mark making.
Her approach to printmaking is personal with an emphasis on creating ‘variable editions’.
Frequently working with a combination of techniques, a final work is often constructed from layers of colour, mark making & texture. Using experimental methods which aim to describe movement, the vitality of nature and beautiful light, her work explores contrasts of solidity, the mysterious substance of shadows, reflections and the surveyance of rhythmical patterns across architectural forms. This vocabulary of visual elements is used with an emphasis on the rendering of the physical experience of a chosen subject.
Clare trained at Camberwell School of Art, attaining a Masters Degree in Fine Art Printmaking in the 1990’s. Since then, she has continued her practice from her studio in North London and with various professional print studios.
Her art has been commissioned by numerous corporate and commercial companies and she exhibits regularly with galleries across the UK and abroad.
